First sesh with the new gear
I finally got the 85L Goya One on the water today! The wind was around 20 mph at the Hatch, but ubut up and down and gusty, so not great for smaller gear but what the heck I couldn't wait any longer. I rigged a 5.2 and got out first on the 105. Once I felt the wind was up I switched to the 85, with 210 fin and 100 thrusters. Man that stick is sleek! It combines the surfey feel of a quad with the drive of a mono. It turns on a dime, I got up on a couple of small swells and the board just switched direction with the slightest foot pressure. The sesh with the 85 was short because the wind came back down so I had to go back to the 105, but so far I'm loving this board!!!
